So this morning, DS woke me up at 4:30, and I temped and it was 97.4. Even for so early, that's a bad sign. Then at 7:30 when he woke up again, it was 97.9. DH took him, and I stayed in bed until 8, at which time it was 98.3. So got a little hopeful. POAS, same color as yesterday, same color as last month this day, so likely just leftover hCG.
TMI alert: Then, a hint of a shadow on my liner after taking DS to school. Ran some errands bc we're leaving town tomorrow, and then there was a hint of spotting. Since then, there's color when I wipe, but nothing on the liner. Now, I'm not usually a spotter, or I should say, I spot a few hours before full-on AF, but I don't have pre-AF spotting. So I expect her any hour now.
I guess if she doesn't come full-on between now and tomorrow, I'll still bring a test with me and the progesterone samples, but I can't imagine this is anything. I'm a teary ball of mess, it feels like AF is coming, just not quite in all her ugliness.
We're gonna take this month off and then do one last IUI next month. There are just too many complicated things going on this month, with leaving tomorrow for 10 days (would have to get an u/s today, femara ordered and picked up today bc would have to start while in the middle of nowhere, would have to get menopur ordered and sent to my sister's house and bring needles with me and dispose of sharps there, then have an u/s the day after we get back and IUI the next morning. And couldn't get in for acupuncture until the u/s day. So I think we're just gonna go with taking a month off. I will most likely use my CBEFM and temp just to confirm O, but I swear to you ladies, right now, I am not temping past the confirmed O. I promise.
